In light of the latest executive order from the Office of the Mayor, all current and future Brooklyn Museum employees are required to present documentation that they have received the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. If, for personal reasons, you are not able to comply with this New York City requirement, we understand and respect your decision. We take the safety and well-being of our employees seriously and thank you for your understanding regarding this change to our hiring process.
Learn from, and work with, experts from all areas of the Brooklyn Museum. As an intern, you'll be paired with a supervisor and integrated into one of our departments, participating fully in day-to-day workplace activities and projects with the guidance of full-time staff members. In addition to gaining extensive work experience, interns have the opportunity to attend seminars that focus on the role of museums in society today, and how they might imagine the future. Internship opportunities include unpaid positions (with the option for school credit arranged through your college or university) as well as competitive paid positions for undergraduates and recent graduates.
